Monster Inspiration ???

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Is there somebody know these hps? I got a present for this christmas and this is not an active noise cancellation version.

 

For the moment I didn't open the box. I can sell them and use the money for something better. But I wanted to learn you guys experience.

 

How is the sound quality? Is it an hi-fi grade or just another marketing success like Beats s..t or something?

 

Does it worth keeping it and using or sound is bad enough to throw it away?

 

Music genres: Pretty much anything, mostly rock/metal.

Main use: With iPod nano, without an AMP.

 

I already checked some videos/reviews but I want real users experience not websites who pumps up all the 'cool' brands products and all. I read nice things about it but same guys also wrote nice things about Beats line so I don't trust them.

 

My only concern is sound quality. Design and portability is ok. Built quality seems nice too and it comes with a protective case (I suppose it is hard case). If sound is good enough I will keep them.

 

What I mean good is usually around level of HFI 780, M50, SRH 840, Dt770 Pro 80 ohm, Custom One Pro, K550 etc etc.

 

I hope somebody can help me.

Do you mean the Behringer HPS stuff?

If so, have a read of the Amazon reviews

Sell it and get a Custom One Pro or something. The Inspiration is okay, but you're paying a lot extra for the looks with mid-fi sound. That said, it's significantly better than the Beats line.

do you have experience with them? I mean how do they sound compared to COP or a headphone around that level? I don't mind money problems since it is a gift, if it is good enough like ATH M50, HFI 780 etc etc I will keep it. If the SQ is lower than these examples, yes then I can sell it and buy something else. Maybe Amperior. I know they are not around ear but still they are the successors of legendary hd25s.

In that case, the Inspiration is imo, around the same level as those headphones. It's inoffensive and forgiving, works with almost all genres. Just wish it was $75ish less.

Monster Inspiration looks to have a VERY similar FR balance like V-Moda M100 http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/MonsterInspiration.pdf

 

V-Moda M100: http://www.innerfidelity.com/images/VModaM100.pdf

 

EDIT: cutting out for easier comparision:

 

Monster Inspiration:

1000

 

V-Moda M100:

1000

 

Interesting.

Has anyone heard both monster inspiration and m-100?  I'm interested in the v-moda's and I have the inspiration.

 

Thoughts? Comparisons? SQ?

I think the only way is sticking to the freq response graphics, until someone makes a side-by-side comparison.

I guess that's gonna have to be me!  I've been hearing nothing but good things, so I think I'm going to get em.  

I've been on the fence about these and Focal's spirit one.  

Likely will just buy both and compare all three sometime in the future...

I noticed you mentioned the dt770s. If you are considering them then I would hands down go with them over the Inspiration. overall quality will be much better sound wise and probably build wise too. COP is another option, but I like the sound sig. of the 770s over the COP IMO.

Yeah... the dt770's are on my list too.  trouble deciding between the 32 and 80 ohm versions. 

so that's 3 phones I have to buy... lol

 

OMG I'm starting to have too many headphones... fml

post #14 of 18

You can never have to many ^_^. I prefer the 80 ohm version with a nice amp/dac if possible. 

post #15 of 18

have you used/owned either?

I'm really set on using them without an amp.  That's just one extra thing I have to carry while travelling.
